Who’s behind Dear Fort Collins? Nick Armstrong, Geek-in-Chief.
As Vice-Chair of the Fort Collins Parks and Recreation Board, I’m all about promoting our City’s amazing green spaces, tree canopy, and recreational spots. You might also catch me at the Boxelder Sanitation District, where I’m all about the tech that keeps the Poudre River clean and healthy. It goes without saying, but just in case: my views published here and elsewhere are strictly my own.
I’m passionate about improving our voting system and ensuring Fort Collins is a sustainable place to live. I played a part in the Ranked Choice Voting campaign and helped get the 2A For Parks initiative across the finish line, which means more funding for our parks, transit, and eco-friendly programs.
I’m a firm believer in leaving things better than I found them. That’s why I’ve advocated for over $50,000 in grants to enhance North East Fort Collins. I helped spearhead the project to create the city’s longest community mural and a water-saving project that is making a real difference: 6.5 million gallons of water each year!
